Rick Mercer is a Canadian comedian who has this show called: Talking to Americans. In this show, Rick Mercer interviews and satirizes the perceived American ignorance of their northern neighbours. However, the other day, we were sitting in a restaurant in Healdsburg. After dinner, I excused myself to use the ladies room. When I got back, my dinner partner was snickering. I asked what happened. He said that when I left, he had overheard the conversation between some people who worked in the restaurant. One had just gone to Canada with his family. He’d toured Niagara Falls and a few other places in Ontario. Then he mentioned visiting Saskatchewan, the waitress had commented: “Oh. I know Saskatchewan. That’s where they have sasquatches. ”
Ok. Sometimes you just have to laugh.
